Public Interest Registry, the not-for-profit operator of the .org, .ngo and .ong domains, today released the results of its bi-annual domain name report “The Dashboard.”
The .Org domain name extension, added 130,865 additional registrations over the last 12 months, bringing the total domains under management (DUM) to 10,547,247.
Other findings outlined in The Dashboard include:
- .org registrations in international markets demonstrate steady growth, particularly in Asia where China has 3.2 percent and Japan has 3 percent of the total .org registrations worldwide.
- After a year hiatus, India jumped back into the top 10 list of .org registrations by country, ahead of Spain, with 1.8 percent of worldwide .org registrations.
- Registrants are renewing their .org registrations at an average rate of 73.7 per year.
The .org Dashboard contains information about happy30th.org, which launched in celebration of the first .org domain registration on July 10, 1985.
The anniversary celebrations will continue throughout the 30th year, and organizations using the .org domain are encouraged to share their stories on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram by tagging their photos and videos with #ORGinAction, or to submit their .org websites directly on happy30th.org.
